Worlds of Pain

HEARTThere are so many awful things going on around the world and it is very heartbreaking. I don’t even know where to start because it isn’t just in the United States; the tragedies are spread throughout the entire world and seem endless. One thing that isn’t new and has been building for at least 3 years is the spread of hatred in the United States and really the entiredont-blindly-follow-any-leader-quote-1 world. I don’t even know why I am surprised anymore because too many people are willing to just follow blindly instead of being fully aware of the damage their hate is causing others. I understand we are only a few weeks into 2020, but you would think by now we would be more progressive rather than have digressed drastically. Unfortunately, I think those that are naïve enough to reality just continue to live like they are better than everyone else, when the truth is we are all humans with a beating heart and emotions.

people-helped-save-animals-fire-australia-fb23-png__700Considering I do have a strong love for animals and humankind, it hurts me to my core with what is going on in Australia. I can’t for one moment understand why some people in this beautiful country would intentionally start these deadly fires. I do not and never will what brings someone to do something so harmful and destructive.

The massive numbers of animals that have lost their lives because of these fires are f295df68-fe43-4c0b-be35-bc383fb4756e_360x203staggering. It is breaking my heart into millions of pieces as I am writing this because there have already been around half a billion animals affected by the fires and millions more have died. According to the Federal Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, almost a third of the koalas have been killed and a third of their habitat has been completely destroyed.

imgonline-com-ua-resize-GUCFfMpS1R6mAt this time 24 people have been charged with intentionally setting the fires. According to the New South Wales police department, there are also another 183 people that are facing legal action. For those that start fires deliberately and act recklessly with the spread of fires, they could be facing up to 21 years in prison. Personally, I do not think 21 years in prison is punishment enough, not only for the catastrophic damage left behind but the deaths of human and animal life.AUSSIE

These horrific fires are in every Australian state, but New South Wales has definitely taken the hardest hit. A state of disaster was declared in Victoria and a state of emergency declared in New South Wales in early January. In November, Queensland also declared a state of

emergency. All of this together has granted remarkable powers and additional government resources to help contain the fires. Thankfully, more than 2,000 fire fighters are working on the ground in New South Wales, with more from the United States, maxresdefaultCanada, and New Zealand on their way to assist.

Another topic that comes with various opinions that is causing difficulties for all living creatures is climate change. I think some are a little confused about what climate change means. Some will even try saying it is “fake news”, but it is very real. Climate change is any significant change in the measures of climate that lasts for an extended period of time. Basically, climate change is major changes in the images (1)temperatures, precipitation, and or wind patterns, among other effects that occur over several decades or longer. Think about how the weather has been behaving over the past few years, do you remember what the temperature was three years ago today? It is supposed to be winter where I live, but it is feels more like spring time. The temperatures significantly  warmer than they were a 2.2few years ago and there are so many rainy days, which I hate complaining about with all Australia is going through right now. I am very curious, do you remember what the weather was a like a few years ago? Do you notice a noticeable change? How can some ignorant people still insist that climate change and global warming is fake news? When are people going to wake up and take action to save our images (1)planet?

In 2020 the amount of hardships throughout the world seem like they are never-ending and strengthening day by day. I did only discuss a few because I didn’t want to torment you by having y’all read a short story detailing everything that is difficult that most, if not all of us are dealing with today. Considering I am logical enough to know I do not have the power to change or save the world. All I can really do is continue to hold onto hope and share information and positivity as much as I can. And I know I went on and on about the tragic events in Australia, but I just can’t ignore this because way too many innocent people had their world turned upside down. Besides from keeping Australia in our thoughts, I think we need to always remember the US military has been sent to Iran at the order from Donald Trump. There has already been one images (2)missile strike out of revenge for the US strike that killed the Iranian military leader, Qassem Soleimani. I think there has already been too many killed and the blood shed needs to end, we certainly do not need another 9/11 because of starting battles between countries.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site. I am sure what I wrote today shows how I feel about everything. I wish CQvxHiZWIAAQ-fqeveryone could learn to get along, be kind and respectful to one another, and stop the killings. I know there probably will never be world peace during lifetime, but I do hope it will happen someday. I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend and you are feeling well. I am looking forward to reading your comments on this post! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

The meaning of Christmas

Christmas-true-meaningPlease forgive me because I do know how incredibly negative this is going to sound, but I feel like the real meaning of Christmas 🎄 has been lost for a very long time. It seems that in 2019 Christmas has become nothing more than another reason to shop, making this holiday that is supposed to have a deeper meaning, all about consumerism.

To me, the meaning of Christmas 🎄 is a time to share love, respect, and encouragement with2ab1aec3c713ae7f7043b02de2f44be9_XL one another and not degrade others. I strongly believe that instead of tearing others down, we should focus on building them up. It is so important to help family, friends and even acquaintances see the strength they have within themselves. 

This is a time we can spend with our families, but at the same time not put too much stress on ourselves. The only thing canvas-family-love-square-small_grande_6bab9f20-040e-4232-a797-a7aa6efd13a8_2048xstress is going to cause is hostility and negative emotions, which can become way too intense and painful. As much as we all want to be able to visit with our family during the holiday season, sometimes life gets in the way making it impossible. No matter the distance between families love is always there and it is never-ending!

To be completely honest with y’all, I have not been in the 🎄 Christmas spirit at all this year. I am not even 100% sure why I have been slightly anti-Christmas this year. I guess it might be because there are always too many expectations that are not only exhausting but unattainable. I am sure many people will disagree with me and want to torture themselves by trying to be in two or three places at the same time.u-g-Q105OKT0

I remember a time that Christmas was astounding and purely magical. I did grow up in the north where there was ALWAYS sparkling snow ❄ covering the ground at Christmas. Heck, there was snow covering the ground on Thanksgiving. A blanket of snow set a picture-perfect vision that allowed kids to go build    snowmen ⛄, create snow ❄ angels, and have snowball fights!

431de0f92642a15a22b28bf3cf19c41bDo you remember what Christmas was like when you were a child? I remember on Christmas Eve being able to open one of my gifts, which were always new Christmas pajamas to wake up in on Christmas day 🎄. I remember putting Christmas cookies and milk out for Santa and putting a few carrots outside for Santa’ reindeer! I can even recall lying in my bed waiting to hear Santa’s sleigh bells ring, so I could run to the window to see Santa, Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Donder, Comet, Cupid, and Blitzen! Viewing life through the innocent eyes of a child can be refreshing and a beautiful thing.

I do sincerely hope the true meaning of Christmas will surface before next December. DMfurNbUQAM2dJMMaybe by December 2020, more can learn to quit carrying hate in their hearts and let more love through those cast-iron walls. I think the world could be a much happier place if everyone would embrace love!

On Christmas, if you were offered any three gifts of your choice and would forfeit any gifts from the future, what would they be? Keep in mind the skies the limit and any wish you make come true. I have listed what my wishes 16be83960a1c19625588b2fd81f8debb.jpgwould be in no particular order.

  1. I wish there would finally be cures for all the illnesses that cause people so many problems.
  2. I wish all the hate in this world cease to exist and make room for love, kindness, and empathy.
  3. I wish no child went without love ❤ and always had food on the table.

Thank you for stopping by my site today. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and you are feeling well. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes.

Donations do help!

NMSS_FY20_YE_Interstitial_r1_mobileI think y’all already know that I have battled with this unpredictable, not so fun autoimmune disease known as Multiple Sclerosis for almost 20 years. For nearly half of my life, I have wanted to not only help others struggling with this disease but also do all I can to help find a cure or at least find easier ways to get through this life.

I may not care much for the news because there is hardly ever anything positive being reported on, but I have heard about how awful the treatment of Amazon workers is. Even though I do find it disgraceful for anyone to be mistreated so we can shop, I am also still a guilty Amazon shopper. Although I am sure there are many issues within the company that starts but doesn’t end with the owner’s corruption and poor treatment of employees, at the same time this company has good as well.

Everyone that shops on Amazon have the opportunity to choose a charity they want to download (5)raise money for through Smile Amazon. The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the charity of your choice. I received an email at the end of last week informing me that the charity I chose, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society received $258, 617.47 year to day in donations because of Smile Amazon. Of course, it still upsets me to think that any Amazon workers are mistreated, but I am still thankful for the donations made to a cause so close to my heart. I can only hope 41jnsvmBEML._SY365_BO1,204,203,200_the donations Smile Amazon has made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will help find a cure for this awful disease.

I have been somewhat familiar with The National Multiple Sclerosis Society since being diagnosed all those years ago but recently wanted to know more. I was very interested to find out how this organization began and what more they were doing. I was completely blown away to discover this organization was brought to fruition from one woman full of determination, Sylvia Lawry.download

Ms. Lawry was one of four children to Jacob and Sophie Friedman. While she was in school at Hunter’s College pursuing her law degree, Ms. Lawry’s younger brother Bernard began experiencing visual and balance issues. It was at this time these symptoms were proven to be early signs of Multiple Sclerosis. The family tried for years without success to find a cure for their imagesdear family member. In 1945, the strong-willed and very determined young lady, Ms. Lawry, placed a small classified notice in the New York Times, “Multiple Sclerosis. Will anyone recovered from this disease please communicate with patient.”

Once she received more than 50 replies, Ms. Lawry realized more funds for research, treatment and finding a cause were desperately needed. On March 11, 1946, she pulled together 20 of the nation’s most honored research scientists to form the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.27b889827d7b041c766fd1b5e7ba47fa

As Bernard’s health continued to worsen, she was seeing there were millions of others like her brother that needed help. At this time she gained assistance from Senator Charles Tobey from New Hampshire whose daughter was fighting against Multiple Sclerosis.

Until her dying day February 24, 2001, she continued her war on Multiple Sclerosis. She was a huge loss to the organization, but her legacy will never be forgotten. She did so much to help discover more about this disease and I believe all of us living with Multiple Sclerosis, should always be thankful for this amazing woman!

348sThank y’all for visiting my site today. I hope this post was eye-opening and helpful. Even though we may not be able to help with these causes as much as we would like, if you shop on Amazon or know someone that does, you can set it up so the company will donate portions of your purchase to any charity you want! I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you are ready for the holiday next week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of     love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

*Rest & Alone Time Good for the soul!*

let-discuss.jpgLet’s have an open and honest discussion about something that is very important to all of us! What do you do when there are several things you either want to do or need to do, but your body is screaming for you to stop and rest?  Do you try your best to ignore pleads from your overworked and weary body and keep going on? Or do you take a step back and listen to what your body is begging you for? Honestly, even though I know it would be best to rest, I tend to push myself not to stop or even slow down at all.life changes

Considering I do want to start making positive changes in my life, I wanted to find out how beneficial restful alone time can be for a person. This is going so sound a little crazy, but I almost felt like this information was granting me permission to have my pleasant alone time and not feel guilty or selfish for doing so.

Unfortunately, finding peace in the world today isn’t an easy task to take on and can exhaustingPositive Life Affirmation and Old Thought Patterns

to try. We see so much hatred and negativity every single day and that is SO WRONG! Even with that said, I do still believe, although it may only be short lived, there are minor things we can do for peace and comfort. I am going to list a few benefits to having your own personal and quit alone time!

  • Alone time gives you the opportunity to unwind and reboot your brain. If your brain is constantly turned “ON”, you are not giving your brain a chance to replenish itself. Time alone with no distractionsimages (7) allows for you to clear your mind, focus, and think a lot more clearly than before. This gives you the chance to revitalize both you mind and body!
  • Alone time can help improve concentration skills and even increase your productivity. If we can remove distractions and interruption from our lives the best we can, our concentration abilities will improve, which will help you get more work done, images (8)is less the time. Spending time by yourself gives you time to discover who you are and to hear your voice. When you are in a group with other people, you tend to just go along with whatever others said, even if it isn’t the action you think would be best.
  • You will have an opportunity to think far deeper if you are left alone with your thoughts, rather than in a group. On a normal day we are thinking or stressing about what our to-do list entails. Try to take short periods of time to sit alone and allow your thoughts to come alive!deep-quotes-every-saint-has-a-past-every-sinner-has-a-future-oscar-wilde-wisdom-quotes
  • It is often difficult to work through our troubles when we are surrounded with interruptions from either other humans or electronics. We do have a better chance to solve our problems if we take time and process things alone.
  • Spending time alone can improve your relationships. If you have spent time by yourself, you will have a better understanding of who you are and who you want to surround yourself with. Once you spent time alone, you will be able to appreciate Zenspirations®_by_Joanne_Fink_Blog_12_4_17_Let_Ypur_Creativity_Shineyour relationships with more love and honesty.
  • Alone time creates a space for creativity to grow and expand! Spending time alone allows your mind to wander candidly activating the brain’s default mode network that is responsible for most original thoughts and ideas.
  • Spending time alone increases self-sufficiency. This gives you the chance to self-reflect and even become comfortable with who you are. You will also be motivated to form your own opinions, free from judgment and criticism from others.

I hope you have found this information as interesting and helpful as I did. I believe allb0c97863a133d3e681c89beadb0f7a6b--art-tutorial-inspirational-posters of us should be learning more and evolving. I really appreciate you taking time to read this.

P.S I hope everything came out okay with this post, WP was giving me troubles this evening

Pride Month

imagesThere are various things that are celebrated and or recognized during the month of June. I have already discussed Scoliosis Awareness because it holds a lot of meaning for me, considering my mother recently received this diagnosis. In the past I had worked with children that battled this disease, but I only knew and remembered the bare minimum about it. The research that I did recently was very interesting and I was glad I was able to share this knowledge with y’all.

The month of June is known for being “Pride Month” and I wanted to share some images (1)information about what this means and how the name came about. Pride Month is celebrated every year in June to honor of the Stonewall riots.  On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn located in New York City’s Greenwich Village area. This was the first major demonstration for gay rights in America and had a lot of support in doing so. The patrons at this bar were all gay men and drag queens that joined together to fight back against the police, which I find admirable!

What I have learned regarding the Stonewall Inn was very eye-opening and extremely Stonewall_Nasdaqinformative. For starters, the Stonewall Inn was operated by a mafia organization known as Genovese. This crime family viewed the LGBTQ community as a profitable group. During this time it was pretty much illegal to be a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. I find the laws in place during this time were invasive and absolutely awful. There were actual laws on the books prohibiting same-sex public display of affection. The police would arrest a person for simply wearing too many gender related articles of clothing, which still makes absolutely NO sense to me. Gay-friendly bars were a problem because officials would actually withhold liquor licenses from the bars which of course caused a major problem for the bars. Once the Genovese organization purchased the bars, they would blackmail city officials to tip them off prior to a raid which gave them a chance to hide all liquor. Sadly, homosexual activities were deemed illegal in most states, but that only made bars like this a lot more appealing to the mafia!images (2)

Brenda Howard, also known as the “Mother of Pride” is a bisexual activist. Brenda is the one that organized a march and other events to commemorate the one year anniversary of the Stonewall riot. Today Pride Month around the country includes educational and awareness events and even parties to celebrate gay pride.

For some reason on June 28, 1969 the mafia was not tipped off about the raid. The police allegedly targeted the Stonewall Inn for its lack of a liquor license and potential GettyImages-141510668.0.0blackmail attempts on the gay attendees present. Not only did the police confiscate all the bar’s alcohol, but they arrested 13 people present for violating the statue on inappropriate gender apparel, which heck that could have been holding hands.

It wasn’t until witnesses saw an officer strike one of the patrons being arrested on the head when all hell broke loose. Patrons and residents lashed out with anything they were able to get their hands on such as bottles, stones and even loose change. With things getting a little out of control, there were even some thoughts of starting a fire. Crowds grew into the thousands rather quickly, which made the police scared for their own lives. I will be nice and not say how I feel about that kind of coward behavior. As more reinforcements arrived, crowds started to get under control during the first night of the riot.2700103_0

On night 2 of the protest, things grew much more intense creating many more aggressive and hostile feelings from both sides. The level power that was felt was something that wasn’t seen before from the protestors, which made them feel their voices were finally being heard!

Several days after the protests had ended; the local paper “The Village Voice” published two demeaning articles. The homophobic slurs infuriated the protesters and once again they started their protests. Protesters took to the streets and this time it included the office of “The Village Voice”. If the newspaper had not been so ignorant and left things alone, there probably would not have been another massive protest.

images (3)During the many demonstrations, the protesters had decided to opt out of any kind of violence. Trying to keep things as calm and safe as possible, the protesters simply formed Rockettes style kick lines with the protesters on one side and police on the other, while chanting “Liberate the bar”. We all know that way too many protests lead to violence which NEVER solves the problem, but creates a lot more issues!

The Stonewall Inn is now a National Monument and considered an important and historic venue for the new era of gay rights. On June 24, 2016 former President Barak Obama made the inn and surrounding areas officially designated to National Park services for appropriate care!images (1)

During 1970, Martha P. Johnson who was a participant in the protest for the Stonewall Inn, started additional acts for the LGBTQ community. Martha started the Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries (STAR), which was an organization dedicated to helping the LGBTQ youth. Martha wanted to help those living on the streets who were also dealing with hateful and judgmental people.

download (4)Today the Stonewall Inn is still in operation. Unfortunately patrons are still facing harassment from the police departments finest. It is possible I am being a slightly facetious because I just cannot understand what kind of person would attack another emotionally and or physically because of their sexual preference. I think y’all know by now that I strongly believe in treating everyone equally and with respect!

Since the riots the Stonewall Inn has changed several times. Just a few months after the riots had settled the Inn became a juice bar. Then between the 1970’s and 1980’s what images (4)used to be the Stonewall Inn had become a bagel shop, Chinese restaurant and even a shoe store. To me it seems as though business in this location was not doing all that great and it is probably because of all the chaos that had occurred. In 2007 the owner decided to renovate the inn and once renovations were complete it turned back into a bar and club once again. This time there were no restrictions on who was allowed as it was open to everyone!

I know this post is rather long, but I have one more thing to say about this. June 26, 2015 maxresdefaultthe US Supreme court ended all states ban on same-sex marriage and legalizes it is all 50 states! The US Supreme court also required all states to honor out of state same-sex marriage. I never knew this, but Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same-sex marriage in 2003.

It really upsets me that in 2019 those that are part of the LGBTQ are still mistreated. Personally I have several friends that are part of this community and they are great people. These people are NOT harming anyone and just want to love who they lovedownload (3) without judgment! The United States have come a long way with how people are treated, but we can keep trying to do better and be better! We are all FREE      to ❤ love whoever we want and should be respected when we make our choice.

Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I always appreciate and value your comments and do look forward to reading what you think! I hope you are having an amazing weekend and you are feeling the best you can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

My accident that shouldn’t have happened!

images (15)Just because a bad day may have turned into a bad week doesn’t mean that we have done something to deserve the troubles we are faced with! All this could mean is, whatever has occurred in our life was just meant to happen exactly when it did and not a moment sooner or later. I know this does not make it any easier to accepted, but I promise life will continue moving forward in the order it supposed to.

My week started off incredibly aggravating because I was dealing with way too many hostile, spiteful and negative co-workers. Even though we are all on the same “team”, we do images (14)work on slightly different tasks. Now each person and each different task contributes to the success of the work getting completed accurately. The ultimate goal for everyone on the “team” should be to ensure the client receives their medication that keeps them alive on time. However, it seems like some of these co-workers get angry we with me because I am able to get more work completed in less time than they can. During one of their many complaint parties, I nonchalantly said how much I understood where they were coming. This was just a way to get them to stop their download (8)complaining and also let them see I also had struggled before.  When I was asked how I managed to do what I do as fast as I do it, I said I had to play with different ways of organizing before I had one that was perfect for me! Of course being the person I am, I shared with them my work-flow with details.

Even though dealing with several snide and bitter co-workers was not easy, it is far better than dealing with purchasing health insurance. I know I have already made my views about this topic perfectly clear, but I actually found out more horrendous images (15)information on Thursday morning. If I were to go through my employer for health insurance the cost would be outrageous and that is an understatement.  My husband and I decided to purchase our own health insurance policy, well at least until he finds job that offers insurance at a more reasonable rate. We were both very pleased when we saw that the monthly rates and deductibles were far lower than the plan through my job. The plan I would get through my employer was going to only include myself and would cost about half my paycheck. The plan we can purchase would include both me and my husband and cost 21%t less than the one I could get through my employer.

The funny thing is, it isn’t even the cost anymore that has me so upset and disgusted because things got even worst. On Thursday morning, my husband and I were talking images (14)before I started work and he told me that the policy we can purchase will NOT cover pre-existing conditions until January. Y’all already know that I do have a pre-existing condition and I worried the day would come when an insurance company could discriminate against me for something I cannot control! It seems like insurance companies and the government want to punish people more that have a chronic illness and this is just NOT right! I think we are punished enough with what we already have to deal with. Maybe I am too emotionally close to this situation, but how the hell can anyone sleep at night when they are creating an awful situation for many Americans?

On Thursday, I ended up leaving work early because my pain and headache were at a high. I thought going home to rest would actually help me recover and feel better. images (16)Unfortunately, I was wrong because no more than 5 minutes of being in the car, I was in an accident. The accident was not my fault; it was the fault of a young kid. We both had a green light, but he was “supposed” to yield to on-coming traffic.

In all the years I have been driving this was the most terrifying thing I have ever experienced. Things kind of went in slow motion before the cars collided with each other. I did everything I could to avoid the crash, but it wasn’t enough. When I realized the kid was not going to stop, I laid on my horn and my foot was appearance of twoon the brake. My car is SO little and I know things could have gone much worst that they did, but it was still terrible. The sound the cars made when they made contact with each other, scared the hell out of me. I always act like a lady and try to be polite, but I got out of my car with furry and colorful language. The stupid and ignorant kid never even had the decency to apologize to me. The only thing this idiot said to me was, “We need to move the cars out of the road.” This was the first accident I have ever been in and I basically told him hell no, not until the police arrive. Honestly there were many more words than that, but I thought it was best to keep this a lot cleaner than The two carsit was!

I know my first call should have been 911, but mine was to my husband. We live so close to where the accident happened and I needed him there immediately. Thankfully my husband got to me in less than 5 minutes. When I called 911, the dispatch lady did tell me to move the cars, but of course I took pictures first. I wanted the cop to see the end result and there to be no questions at all whose fault it was.

The end result was my car was towed to a car repair place and the kid drove away with hardly any damage to his jeep. I am going to need to get a rental car until my car has been fixed, but I am terrified to drive again. Two days after the accident, I am still very sore. Y’all know I am use to dealing with pain, but it has elevated drastically. I am doing my best to just rest because that is the only thing that will calm the pain down.

Even with him there I was inconsolable and just cried and shook. Later he told me he was worried I was going to have a heart attack. In an effort to make me feel better, my husband gave me a new crochet bag and hooks, which are so great!! He has also been very attentive and helpful! I do want to let y’all know that I am okay after this accident and only dealing with extra pain.

Unfortunately I think we have all probably had a bad day or even a bad week when nothing seems to be going the right way. There comes a time when we have that thought, “Why me?” or “What did I do so wrong to deserve this?”  Well the truth is, there are NO reasons at all and it is definitely not a punishment. My experience with negative people and greedy insurance companies is just part of life. Even though I don’t know what it is, there was a reason for the accident to happen. We have been discussing selling my little car and images (17)getting me something that is much safer and maybe this accident was a push to do so!
